The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.
When a group of friends visited Tokyo around 1991, it was all the rage for the local teenagers to wear T shirts with English writing on them, and they didn't seem too concerned with what those words meant. One young guy had one on that said "cassette tape" across his chest.
Amazing build, one of the nicest vintage NASCARs I've ever seen, spot-on stance and detailing, and an absolutely exhaustive conversion from a '64 to a '63. My head is still spinning. To the left, that is.
I added white walls to this 1:18 Falcon by using an art store gel pen and holding the wheels to an electric can opener, which spins them slowly. Touch the pen to the tires, and that's all there is to it. If you mess one up, just wipe it down with thinner and start over.
Very nice job, you got the look just right. A friend told me that his parents were shopping for a new car in 1963 or 1964 to replace their '53 Ford sedan. His father insisted on looking at the Checker Marathon as he didn't like any of the "new" cars because they were too low, and he couldn't wear his hat, and a man wears a hat! So they went to a, or possibly the only Chicago Checker dealer (a very lonely man) and test drove the car. He liked it a lot, and asked his wife what she thought. She said, "If you buy this car, you will need to buy a second car for me because I refuse to ride in it." They got a Mercury Commuter wagon instead.
